Rutronik adds Littelfuse Schottky barrier rectifiers
Based on silicon Schottky diode technology, MBR series Schottky barrier rectifiers are now available from distributor, Rutronik.
The DUR Series rectifier has fast switching speed with very low reverse recovery time (TRR), high blocking voltage of up to 1,200V and low leakage. The low forward voltage drop makes it possible to minimise power loss and increase efficiency during converter operation, says the company. The higher temperature capability and low leakage are claimed to provide higher reliability in harsh, high temperature environments and applications with minimal cooling availability.
Typical applications for both series include UPS, high frequency SMPS and DC/DC converters, as well as free-wheeling diodes and polarity protection diodes. The DUR series also addresses applications such as anti-parallel diodes for high frequency switching devices, e.g. IGBTs, inductive heating and melting as well as ultrasonic cleaners and welders.
